is Instagram compatible with Creative Commons?
Can I upload *my* Instagram pics on Commons (so could it be used for WLM)?
Please consider that I'm not suggesting Instagram pics are good for WLM
(they are filtered and all, probably not very suitable for illustrating
monuments on Wikipedia)
but is a legal matter.
I wonder, in some of the international nominees (beautiful pictures again
btw, congratulations), there are some where there is no identified monument
available. For example, there is a photo of the Nile river
any identified monument, and in Brazil a photo of the Army headquarters
without identified monument.
I have my doubts about such photos - while they are of good quality, if
there is no identified monument, I wonder if they should be disqualified
for the international prizes.
I would value your thoughts on this. Maybe it doesn't come up at all (I
don't know how high up they will end), maybe it does.
I remember that in 2012 there was a tool that showed how much each monument
was photographed and other very important statistics about WLM. I believe
it was developed by Platonides, but don't remember for sure.
Does anyone use such a tool recently, or know how to get such statistics?
we have a price in France for newly illustrated monuments but unfortunately
we have forgotten to make a copy of the database dump before the
competition starts this year. And as the monument database dump (
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:Monuments_database/Sql ) is
overwritten every day we can't get old databases :(
So is there any chance someone there has kept a copy of the database dump
from 31st August?
four countries are still missing from the jury pool:
If you are in touch with the jury in these countries, and have the top-10
images available, please contact me or Romaine as soon as possible! Soon we
will have to start with the jury process, and after that no new images can
be added any more.
